  • About

    What is BASHCon?

    BASHCon is a nerd culture convention that takes place in February at the University of Toledo. BASHCon started in 1985 as a small gaming convention under the name of “Winterfest”. With the help of the community, BASHCon went from a small University event, to a convention that people from different parts of the country come in to see.

    BASHCon features a variety of events, including: panels, video and card game tournaments, anime screenings, arcade, board games, RPGs, and LARP. Every year brings new and exciting things!
